Thank you.

I love the small plane that we were on. I wish there were more flights that used smaller planes. It feels more premium than the planes with hundreds of people.

Nov 26, 2019

Did not know that we would not be able to have carry on luggage until check in a day before the flight.

Great Flight attendants!

I had requested a wheelchair and no one came, the pilot helped me off the plane and waited with me for seems like 10 minutes until one came to take me to my connecting flight.

Flew by n same plane earlier with fancier seats but less legroom. Simple was better

Plane was dirty, with upholstery falling apart. Velcro was coming apart behind the seats.
